The Real Thing-crd  George Strait

Well I was [E]on a bus coming back to us
from [A]Atlanta in '5[E]3
And I picked up a rhythm and blues magazine layin'
[B]underneath my seat
And I [E]found out the stuff they were playin' us
wasn't [A]made from grits and [E]bone
And it takes more than the Crewcuts and Pat [B]Boone
to take me [E]home
Chorus:
I want the [E]real thing give me the [A]real thing[E]
Make it loud and make you proud
of the songs they [B]sing
I Don't want you [E]under my roof with your 86 proof
Watered [A]down 'til it tastes like [E]tea
You're gonna pull my string
make it the [B]real thing for me[E]
Solo: E B E
I rem[E]ember old Elvis when he forgot
to rem[A]ember to forge[E]t
And when young Johnny Cash hadn't seen this side of
[B]big river yet
And when [E]sun was more than daylight shining on
[A]Memphis, Tennesse[E]e
And [E]Luther and Lewis and Perkins was pickin'
and [B]playin' them songs for m[E]e
Chorus:
I want the [E]real thing give me the [A]real thing[E]
Make it loud and make you proud
of the songs they [B]sing
I Don't want you [E]under my roof with your 86 proof
Watered [A]down 'til it tastes like [E]tea
You're gonna pull my string
make it the [B]real thing for me[E]
Solo: E A E B E A E B E
Chorus:
I want the [E]real thing give me the [A]real thing[E]
Make it loud and make you proud
of the songs they [B]sing
I Don't want you [E]under my roof with your 86 proof
Watered [A]down 'til it tastes like [E]tea
You're gonna pull my string
make it the [B]real thing for me[E]
You're gonna pull my string
make it the [B]real thing for me[E]
